Saudi Arabia Holds Job Fair In Tokyo For Its Students In Japan
TOKYO (Nikkei)--The Saudi Arabian government hosted a job fair here Tuesday for Saudi students studying in Japan.
One participant hoped to gain experience in Japan before working for a Japanese company in Saudi Arabia. Another expressed interest in continuing to work in Japan, pointing to the lack of jobs for younger people back home.
Some 150,000 Saudi students study abroad, with 500 in Japan. The Saudi government has held similar overseas job fairs in the U.S., the U.K. and Canada.
